The Portal is our lightest freestanding tent at 2lbs 14oz. It's our statement piece saying you don't need to sacrifice strength, features, or durability to make an ultralight freestanding tent.

If there's a stronger sub three-pound tent out there, we have yet to find it. By incorporating several technologies from our Expedition Series tents, we were able to give the Portal a degree of stability and weather resistance previously reserved for dedicated "four-season", or more accurately, "one season" tents.

We designed the Portal with an eye for long-term durability. This means using premium fabrics with excellent UV and mildew resistance, eliminating PU coatings that break down over time, and adding extra zipper sliders to double the zippers' lifespan.

The Portal can be set up fly-first to keep the inner tent dry in rainy conditions. Instructions are found in the bottom video below.

Heading to Patagonia? Spending some time in the desert? Pick up our Heavy Duty Portal pole set. This replaces the stock 8.7mm poles with extra sturdy 10.65mm poles to provide additional wind and snow loading resistance.

To prolong the life of your Portal's floor, pick up a Portal footprint. For ultralight weather protection in non-buggy conditions, check out the Portal Tub Floor. Additional stakes and guylines can be purchased here.

The Portal is now available in a muted green/brown colorway without reflective trim for those who like to keep a lower profile.


  • Two doors and two vestibules increase livability for two.
  • Two pre-installed internal guylines give the Portal great lateral stability for almost no weight increase. 
  • Our new KickStand vents make ventilation a breeze. Opposing struts on the vestibule doors provide unrestricted cross-tent airflow for excellent condensation management without sacrificing weather protection.
  • Short pole package is perfect for bikepacking
  • High-volume pole structure with a swivel provides well-distributed headroom without the weakness of hubs.
  • Pole swivel connects long poles for easy setup
  • All the pockets you could ever want (two ceiling, two head, two side, one foot).
  • Offset vestibule design eases entry and exit.
  • 10 external guy points and 2 perimeter pull-outs provide ample reinforcement.
  • External guy points are matched to toggles to attach the fly directly to the poles, increasing stability.
  • Matching reflective tabs on fly and tent body simplify setup.
  • Color coordinated stake loops for easy flysheet orientation
  • Can be pitched with footprint (not included) and fly for a minimalist weather shelter.
  • 2-Side silicone impregnated flysheet and PE floor fabric are mildew-resistant and have excellent hydrolytic stability, and will last significantly longer than traditional PU-coated fabrics.
  • Pre-installed spare zipper sliders on every zipper double your zippers' lifespan.
  • Includes 10 DAC J-Stakes and 6 additional external guylines (not including 2 pre-installed internal guylines)
